There was a pad that you could take the entire face off of and swap graphics out. Not sure if it was ever produced, but they definitely took some kids money.

Sever goaltending was the brand, I remember it well on the old gsbb whe they stole that kids money.

I always thought these two blockers were pretty bizarre:

The Vaughn 3500 crooked blocker

And the Vaughn Legacy 2 blocker with the mesh windows that cut into the word

I never owned either but I really wanted the Legacy 2 when I was a kid and a huge Osgood fan

The mesh was part of the “air dispersal system”. In essence, to kill rebounds. I attached a rare Nash version onto a 1X blocker, which is pretty hilarious, being that the Bauer blockers have the exact opposite effect.

Clear lexan thigh boards. Never got used to the idea.

Not-clear lexan danglers are weird too.

Lexan cowlings on the Bauer skates too.  Remember seeing these things crack all the time, and they were super heavy

Also, heated skate blades
